The tourney bracket shown is odd, UAB a bye into next round AND in a bracket spot where a round one winner has to go? That can't be.

It has to be a misprint. I don't believe UAB qualified for the tournament. 

It's unfortunate that rice ended up as the 4 seed would have preferred southern miss on our side of the bracket.

Why does FIU scare me so much. They have a way of sneaking up on you when it's tourney time.

Maybe catching Rice at the right time though, not so hot right now! Any way you look at it, gotta keep winning to win the tourney.

Also, Rice will probably use their stud left hander before we face them. The rest of the staff looks very hitable.

that kid from rice could be a second or third round pick. it will be a very interesting series. I say take tomorrow off, then hit the field monday for practice. What is the word on Labsan?

Just another note it is a extremely disappointing that we do not have a facility that is up to par to host a regional. Because it is pretty clear cut we would be hosting this year. 

Now we could be a one seed at a regional on the west coast, or losing a regional to UF because we don't have the facility this program deserves. 

I know it's like beating a dead horse here, but it's never been more apparent than at this time to me.

Man, don't get me started. I laugh to myself at the beginning of every home game when the announcer says"for your convenience, restrooms are located behind the stadium ,at the swimming complex". Even that is false as we now have jiffy johns due to construction at the complex. This is what it is and will not change any time soon. We do not have the money to do anything about it. But yes, we would be a host this year. Our baseball stadium ranks right at the bottom of CUSA schools. Good thing the team is good. The field is first class and the stadium is second rate.

The baseball stadium issues are not new. We have had the same issues for 20 years.

I went to the game Thursday to see our Top 20 team play and there were about 100 people there and half of those were WKU fans.

Sometimes there are more issues than "just build it and they will come" or "just win and they will come." Neither concept has proven to build our fan base that I have seen. Unfortunately, the only concept that may work is time.
